Description

    BACKGROUND
  • It is common for books, documents and/or the like to be created, mastered and stored as multiple single-page portable document format (“PDF”) files. Formatting a book as multiple single-page PDF files rather than as a single multi-page PDF file allows for multiple author revisions and quick and isolated updates.
  • Printing the entire book as a collated compilation usually requires performing a centering operation on each individual file and then printing the individual files as a single print job. A problem arises when the file images are not centered within corresponding page boxes. To address this problem, a pre-press operator is often required to add a page box, such as a trim box, to each file so that the image is centered within the page box. However, this is a tedious and time consuming process that adds significant processing time to the document production process.
  • SUMMARY
  • Before the present methods are described, it is to be understood that this invention is not limited to the particular systems, methodologies or protocols described, as these may vary. It is also to be understood that the terminology used herein is for the purpose of describing particular embodiments only, and is not intended to limit the scope of the present disclosure which will be limited only by the appended claims.
